2012 on red carpet

Out with the old, In with the new! The New Year is a great time to reflect on your accomplishments of the previous year and set Goals for the New Year. What could have been better? What's the next step to take to continue last years success? How will this year be different and better?  It's time to set Goals for the new year. While you can't control everything, goals will help you stay on track, stay focused, and accomplish the most in the amount of time allotted. We've each been given 366 days in 2012! Yes, 2012 has a bonus day with leap year. While that may seem like a lot, it will go quickly. 

Let's use those 366 days wisely as they are a limited time offer. You must use them or you will lose them!

2012 Film Strip

How you use your 366 days depends on your particular needs and goals.

  • Financial Goals: Perhaps you have a particular financial goal and need or want to make a particular salary. You'll need to break your goals down to a level that best serves you. If you need to make $48,000 per year, break that down to $4,000 per month and then to approx. $1,000 per week (based on 4 week mth) and so on. Working on a short term goal can help you accomplish the long term goal.
  • Recognition Goals: Some folks are driven more by recognition and accomplishment than money. Maybe this year you sold 30 houses and next year want to sell 40. Just like with the financial goal, break it down to the smallest amount you can. 
  • Family Goals: You may recognize you need or want to spend more time with your spouse and/or children. This is important. You need to figure out the best way to do this whether it's to cut back or hire someone to help in your business so you can do this. Maybe you can just figure out a way to work smarter.
  • Spiritual Goals:  Whether it's a bible study, prayer time, or just meditation, the best thing you can do here is set a reasonable goal and time and stick to it. If you don't, you'll drop it before you know it. You may want to find someone to be your prayer, bible study, or meditation partner.
  • Weight Loss/Exercise Goals: It's difficult to start the new year without evaluating health goals. Most all of us think about this. Again, start with something reasonable so you'll stick to it. Having an accountability partner or a running/exercise partner can help with this as well.
With any goal, setting the goal is just the beginning. you have to make a plan to carry it out. Now is a perfect time because it's on your mind and because you can let go of any past failures and start new. Never Give Up! If you keep trying, you'll eventually succeed!

Popular Quotes about time:

“Time is free, but it's priceless. You can't
own it, but you can use it. You can't keep
it, but you can spend it. Once you've lost it
you can never get it back.”Harvey MacKay

Time is what we want most, but what we use worst.
William Penn

Time is an equal opportunity employer.  Each human being has exactly the same number of hours and minutes every day.  Rich people can't buy more hours.  Scientists can't invent new minutes.  And you can't save time to spend it on another day.  Even so, time is amazingly fair and forgiving.  No matter how much time you've wasted in the past, you still have an entire tomorrow.  ~Denis Waitely

Don’t be fooled by the calendar. There are only as many days in the year as you make use of. One man gets only a week’s value out of a year while another man gets a full year’s value out of a week.
Charles Richards

The bad news is time flies. The good news is you’re the pilot.
Michael Altshuler


So Remember: 2012 is a Limited Engagement. How you determine to spend it will determine It's Success! Either Way, it will all be Over in 366 Days! Ready, Set, Go!

Carla, You have created a great list of potential improvement goals! One of mine this year is to become more proficient regarding social media. I wish you the best for 2012!

Posted by Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can!, So Utah Residential, Referral & Relocation REALTOR (Red Rock Real Estate) over 8 years ago

Hi Wanda - Thank you. I'm with you on that one. My goal is to tend to my social media efforts a little more.

I'm working on my goals as well and will be meeting with my partner to firm up our business goals for 2012.


Best to you & yours in 2012!

William Penn was on to something those many decades ago. We are so good at wasting time.

Posted by Jim Frimmer, Realtor & CDPE, Mission Valley specialist (HomeSmart Realty West) over 8 years ago

That little island nation out in the Pacific can use that extra day since they didn't have a December 30. They went directly from December 29 to December 31. Can you image your little child whose birthday is December 30 being told that last year he wouldn't have a birthday?

Posted by Not a real person over 8 years ago

Jim - Yes, where does the time go. We would probably be amazed if we were to see a calculation of all our wasted time.

Russel - That is so funny. Yes, I heard about that little island nation jumping the time zone. Interesting the leverage they have.

Carla - some very nice quotes here on time but I really liked the last one by Michael Altshuler ..... we really are the pilot and we have the opportunity to put our life on auto pilot or take the yoke and fly

Posted by Kathy Clulow, Trusted For Experience - Respected For Results (RE/MAX All-Stars Realty Inc. Brokerage) over 8 years ago

Kathy - Thanks for stopping by! You're correct! We do need to take the yoke and fly. Happy New Year!
